KK vibration at 80km (40mph)

Hello, I have just taken a KK cherokee for a test drive. Driving was Ok until I hit 80 km/h about 40 mph, then I felt a juddering through the transmission.
It felt like driving over rough tarmac. below 80km was fine and over 80km was fine. The salesman says it is a torqueconverter hunting issue and they all do it.
I am looking to replace my 1994 cherokee which does not judder. I believe the transferbox is the same model isn't this the torqueconverter?
The Cherokee was a petrol auto 2010 model 100km (75miles) on the clock.

I feel the exact same thing in mine around 40 mph, but then I realized it was on the same road in the exact spot each time. Don't know if it's my Jeep or the road now??

@ 30,000 miles have you had a wheel alignment, tire balance?

Nope, balance should not change unless a tire goes bad or a weight comes off and tires are wearing pretty even..You can tell this is a mechanical issue when it happens. It feels sort of like driving into a strong wind and it's trying to push you backwards. Then it goes away...
